‘Copyright Criminals’ screening next Wed, 1/19 #nyc #freeculture

The New York Law School IP Society will present a screening of the film Copyright Criminals next Wednesday 1/19/2011. After the film there will be a panel discussion.

Remixes and sampling are part of our musical culture, but what’s the legality behind them? Copyright Criminals delves into this question by looking at the intersection between musical expression and copyright law. The film showcases different artists who sample, artists who have been sampled, and the legal scholars and practitioners who argue over how the law should control it all.

WHEN: Wednesday, January 19, 2011 - 6:00 p.m.–8:30 p.m.
WHERE: New York Law School, Rm W201, 185 West Broadway NYC
RSVP: This event is open to the public.  RSVP to Naomi Allen at naomi.allen@nyls.edu by January 12, 2011.
